Getting games to work on Raspberry Pi

For a while, I was unable to get any games to play on raspberry pi, and whenever I tried to get to where you actually were playing them, the games and everything would freeze up. I found a simple solution to that issue. Just add this little line of code to the bottom of /boot/config.txt and it should fix it.

gpu_mem=128

I kept having problems with playing descent and quake 3 arena due to this issue, but that little patch was all that it took to fix it.

edit: Alternatively you can use the line below and just paste it onto the command line and press enter, and it does it all for you.

sudo sh -c  “echo ‘gpu_mem=128’ >> /boot/config.txt”
